My mum is worse than ever with her lungs full of fluid she doesnt even need to cough, she walks about 6 yards and is so breathless she just flops onto her bed or chair and has to wait till she can get her breath back, she doesnt want the doctor in, she thinks they will take her away, and if I am really honest, would she be better slipping away with lack of oxygen and pneumonia than waiting for the cancer to get a hold.?
She is eating well, small meals but 3 good ones a day, plus a big bowl of mixed fresh fruit lots of tea, coffee and chocolate. She will drink about 1·5lts of water as well.
If we could clear her lungs and IMO, although no expert, get some oxygen into her, she would feel a lot better. But is she happy as she is? I dont know, so is she best left? I dont know that either.
I do know that when I spoke to the doctor on the telephone in December, he said if I didnt report anything, they would treat it as a neglect case?
So, at the moment I am very torn between going over her head and calling him in, or just leaving her go. Found the perfect smilie here
